Increase Readiness by Reducing Uncertainty

Four Dimensions of Uncertainty, One measure of Opportunity Readiness

Boundary pushing innovations are those Horizon 2 and Horizon 3 opportunities that have large degrees of uncertainty and, therefore, are not suited to standard New Product Development processes. These are the evolutionary and transformational opportunities that will drive accelerated future growth but that are also the most problematic for companies to manage. The ADOPTS™ framework focuses efforts on reducing the degree of uncertainty and increasing opportunity readiness.

Four dimensions of uncertainty:

Organization

Where will the new opportunity fit in the organization and who will support it?

Demand

What is needed and desired, by who, how much and why?

Design

Is what we need to create possible and can it be made desirable?

System

What is the new ecosystem within which the innovation can thrive and how can it be created?
